I grew up within a quarter mile of Fab's...long before it existed. For years, driving past it, for some reason I thought it was perhaps one step above a coffee house. No - I have no idea why! Well, when my friend took me there during the holidays last year, I fell in love with the place. It's very pretty - warm, woodsy colors, lots of high-backed booths, which provide privacy and cut the noise level to a gentle murmur - and the service was friendly and efficient. It was the food, however, that sold me! An eight-dollar bowl of escarole and white bean soup was huge and a full meal in itself. I only ate half, because it was followed by a favorite dish: saltimbocca. Scrumptious! I just took another pal and the experience was the same.
